Let's use an area model to find the answer to $30\div2$30÷​2.

a

We set up the area model using a rectangle like this.

$2$2
Total area: $30$30

Now if we don't know straight away what $30\div2$30÷​2 is, we start with something we do know, like groups of $10$10.

Fill in the area used so far if we take out $10$10 groups of $2$2.

$10$10
$2$2 $\editable{}$
Total area: $30$30
b

How much area is remaining?

  $10$10  
$2$2 $20$20 $\editable{}$
  Total area: $30$30
c

What is the width of the second rectangle?

  $10$10 $\editable{}$
$2$2 $20$20 $10$10
